Wedding DIY Fresh Flower Drink Stirrer


 If I could, I’d put fresh flowers on just about anything, so why not in a cocktail too? With a sweet set of vintage glasses from Pollen Floral Design and always gorgeous photos from Cambria Grace, these fresh flower drink stirrers have me ready to sip and smell!

Materials

Wood Skewers
Fresh Flowers
Gold Embroidery Thread
Hot Glue Gun

Directions

Step-1 For larger flowers, such as a ranunculus or a poppy, snip off most of the stem, leaving a bit right under the flower head. For smaller and more wild flowers, such as chamomile or aster, snip off one stem with a small bunch.

Step-2 For the larger flowers, all you need to do is simply skewer the stem. Piece of cake! For the smaller flowers, use the gold embroidery thread to wrap around the base until tightly wound. (As you will see, I used some gold thread to embellish some of the larger flowers as well)!

Step-3 Place a dot of hot glue on the back of the embroidery thread, and use the glue to seal the thread.

Step-4 Pour yourself a cocktail, and enjoy! The floral scent while you sip is just an added bonus.
